    • Cabrera walked and homered in a 1-for-3 game with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over Seattle. This marks Cabrera's first home run of July. Despite the lack of pop, he has been making excellent contact this month, as his has just three strikeouts in 43 at-bats to go with a sharp .326 batting average. Cabrera has never posted a strikeout percentage worse than 13.3 percent in his career and that makes him one of the league's best bets to hit near .300 on a yearly basis -- his batting line now sits at .298/.346/.457.

    • White Sox's Melky Cabrera: Back in lineup Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cabrera (wrist) is back in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He'll start in left field and bat fifth in the order. Cabrera had missed five consecutive games while tending to the wrist injury, but the White Sox apparently feel comfortable with where he's at on the health front after he was able to make it through batting practice. The veteran was on a bit of a heater prior to his absence, going 11-for-26 with two homers and six RBI over his most recent six games, so fantasy owners will have to hope the wrist issue didn't disrupt his rhythm too much.

    • Cabrera (wrist) is unlikely to return until Monday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Cabrera's wrist injury is keeping him on the shelf for the fourth consecutive game Saturday, and it appears he'll sit out for the remainder of Chicago's series against Houston. Avisail Garcia is starting in left Saturday and will likely continue to do so in Cabrera's absence.

    • Cabrera (wrist) will miss 3-4 days after being diagnosed with a sprain, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Cabrera left Tuesday's game with wrist soreness and it appears it will be bad enough to keep him out a few more games, although manager Robin Ventura stated that he does not believe a trip to the DL will be required. The 31-year-old is hitting .294/.344/.462 with eight home runs, 17 doubles, three triples and 39 RBI on the season.

    • Cabrera (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins. He left Tuesday's game with left wrist soreness and will need at least another day of rest before returning to action. Cabrera has been battling the injury since landing on it wrong while trying to make a diving catch on June 18. He feels it when he swings and misses, and for now he is just day-to-day. Avisail Garcia will start in left field Wednesday.
